A Pure Solar World - Sun Ra


346 pgs.
University of Texas Press, Publ.

A spirited introduction to the life and work of Sun Ra. Paul Youngquist explores and assesses Sun Ra's wide-ranging creative output--music, public preaching, graphic design, film and stage performance, and poetry--and connects his diverse undertakings to the culture and politics of his times, including the space race, the rise of technocracy, and the civil rights movement. Sun Ra aimed not just at assimilation for the socially disenfranchised but even more at a wholesale transformation of American society and a more creative, egalitarian world.
